The Jaws game:

Between you and me, I think mom really bought this game for herself. She'd make me play it with her. It was embarrassing, really. Basically, it would be:
"Come on, Joe, we're gonna play Jaws".
"Not again...".
"Just one game".
"But we just played it yesterday!!"
When we moved, I "accidentally" lost it. Funny how that happened..

I remember a bunch of my friends had this, but I can't ever remember playing it. I guess I didn't miss out on much.

I had this game, too!!! Damn, that brings back memories!

SG: Alot of people had this one. Well, you can't have everything.

Wings: Notice in the picture on the box they omitted the naked lady swimmer... back then I probably would've stared at the box more than playing the game..

joe said...

I had one of these and frequently played with my family.

Around this same time, a friend of mine had a Operation game that no longer buzzed if you touched the sides while you were "operating". When it was your turn, the other players would all watch very closely and make a buzzing noise if they thought you touched the sides. Needless to say, many heated disputes arose while playing!

I found the wishbone to be the hardest to remove.. i hated that wishbone.

I think we ultimately got frustrated with the game and just played with the shark in the pool.

joe said...

Now that would've been fun..

I actually find it could be great fun -you can go tell your Mum just that ;-)

joe said...

Indy: Well then you can play it with her..

MP: That's funny. Poor Barbie ;^)

I lived, breathed, infused and ingested all that was the vainglorious decade of the 70's.

Or at least I thought I did.

How in the name of all that is good and holy did I manage to miss "The Jaws Game"?!?

Looks like a serious life eval is in order, and no, I'm not being snarky :)

I had that Jaws game and loved it dearly. I want it again. Wish they still made it.

joe said...

You could probably get one on ebay. I'm not sure how much they go for these days
